LAST 10 GAMES: Hurricanes: 6-4-0, averaging 3.3 goals, 5.8 assists, 3.7 penalties and 8.8 penalty minutes while allowing 2.7 goals per game with a.902 save percentage. The Lightning has played pretty well recently, winning their last three before losing the St. Louis Blues in their last game 4-3.

TOP PERFORMERS: Nikita Kucherov leads the Lightning with nine goals and has recorded 27 points. Alex Ovechkin tied the game with his team-leading 17th goal 11:36 into the third. Tampa Bay averages 10.3 points per game to lead the National Hockey League, recording 3.7 goals and 6.6 assists per game.

Lightning forward Steven Stamkos returned after missing three games because of a lower-body injury.

"I've liked our game", Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. James Reimer is expected to get the nod in this one.

The tweet also noted that anything less than the aforementioned is just an attempt at "covering your own ass". On Sunday, Union quoted a tweet that outline the three steps in "a solid apology".

Though the team is 15-11 straight up (SU) this season, Carolina has actually lost 1.2 units for bettors taking the moneyline thus far.

Orlov won the game with his second goal of the season. He got a pass from Kuznetsov to the blue line, simulated as he was trying to cross the ice to Tom Wilson, then fired a shot low inside the left post.

Vrana started Washington's comeback when he beat Vasilevskiy from the right faceoff circle 3:45 into the third. Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed four goals on 33 shots in the defeat. I do think that the Lightning has more firepower and they are more risky of a team, but I like the over/under on points in this one. "Obviously it stings, I thought we did a good job on the PK and disrupted their momentum". Oshie had three assists. Brayden Point opened the scoring with his 100th career goal, a power-play marker with 70 seconds remaining in the first period, and Mikhail Sergachev doubled the lead with technique not often seen from a defenseman. The Lightning enter this one tied for fifth in the Atlantic Division, one point behind Toronto and Buffalo, who are tied for the final guaranteed playoff spot. Lightning D Braydon Coburn came out after the second period with a lower-body injury. To make room for Stamkos, the Lightning reassigned LW Cory Conacher to the minors. Holtby started six consecutive games, a peak in the season. The second period saw the Lightning with a 14-5 edge in shots and a 2-1 edge on the scoreboard to take a 3-1 lead.
